Find your own trail on a bike

Mountain bike camp for kids

    Want to have some fun on the trails and improve your mountain biking this summer?
    Join up with the 12th summer season of the Sun Valley Road & Dirt summer mountain bike camp for kids.
    All ability levels are welcome in a program sponsored by local mountain bike pacesetter Billy Olson and his Hailey-based Powerhouse Fit Studio, along with Sun Valley Road & Dirt. Coaches are Olson and bike enthusiast Joel Zellers.
    The age range is 7-12, with experienced six-year-olds also welcome to come out and “rip!”
    Kids arrive at the Croy Creek Recreation Area and trail head west of Hailey in two camp sessions. They are Monday through Friday, June 9-13, and July 21-25. Times are 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day.
    Included in the fee of $275 per week (or $500 for two weeks) are individualized instruction, a water bottle, t-shirt and a rider photograph. Scholarships are available.
    “The goal is to expose kids to the exciting and challenging sport of mountain biking,’ said coach Joel Zellers.
    “We want all participants to leave the camp with enough confidence to ride single track trails with the friends and parents. We also strive to teach kids bike handling, pump track and trial course riding, bike safety, trail riding, and maintenance skills. All this is accomplish through a fun filled atmosphere where students end the day with a smile on their face,” Zellers said.
